Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 2 May 2049 at 00:11.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1805" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2049 after 13 days on 17 May 2049 at 11:13.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 610 of Meeus index or 1563 from Brown series.
Length of current 610 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 611 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠102.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠136.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
11 days after point of perigee on 22 April 2049 at 11:15 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 May 2049 at 22:34 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 397 132 km (246 766 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 657 km (251 442 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 20 April 2049 at 23:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 May 2049 at 04:33 in ♊ Gemini.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 21 April 2049 at 13:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.138°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.094° in the next northern standstill on 4 May 2049 at 21:27 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 17 May 2049 at 11:13 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
